Last night marked the opening night of the joint ZZ Top and Gov’t Mule tour, pairing two titans of Southern rock for an extended period of performances. For Gov’t Mule, the engagement means more time spent on the road, after a successful stint with Blackberry Smoke that carried the band through the end of summer. ZZ Top, too, has been touring extensively this year, and the fusion of these two groups can only mean high powered rock and roll.Gov’t Mule started out the night with an hour-long set, bringing seven songs to the fine folks of Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY. It was “Bad Little Doggie” that opened the show, and Mule mostly stayed within the confines of their own catalog. The only exception was “Kind of Bird,” an Allman Brothers song that was co-written by Warren Haynes and Dickie Betts.Surprisingly, the show did not feature any collaborations between the two bands, but with seven more shows coming up in the next two weeks, you can bet that there will be! Check out some video footage from the night, capturing Mule’s rocking set to open up the show. The full Mule setlist can be seen below. Check out some highlights from ZZ Top’s set as well!

BURLINGTON, Vt.–David J. Provost of Shelburne, Vt., has been named vice president of finance and administration at Champlain College. He will be a member of the Presidents Council and will be responsible for the Colleges finance, human resources and physical plant. Provost replaces Lawrence J. Veladota, who retired from the College after 35 years of service.Mr. Provost has rich experiences in a number of different positions–from serving as a CPA, CFO and CEO–which will strengthen our senior management team, said President Roger H. Perry.After graduating from St. Michaels College, Provost joined Deloitte & Touche in Boston, where he conducted annual audits of public, private and governmental companies, including Oceanspray Cranberries, Kens Foods, Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Cape Cod Hospital. He was then hired away by one of his audit accounts, Skis Dynastar Inc., and served as vice president of finance and operations. He was promoted to executive vice president and oversaw North American distribution subsidiaries of Skis Dynastar S.A., a division of Group Rossignol. Provost had full sales, marketing and financial responsibilities of this winter sport products company with profit and loss responsibility of $40 million in annual revenue.Most recently Provost worked as a consultant and formed a licensed apparel company, Select Licensing Group. During the past eighteen months, Provost has worked closely with Champlain College on important costing and budgeting projects, including obtaining a financing agreement and tracking the construction budget for the three new buildings of Champlains Power of Three Capital Campaign.He combines the strengths of a strong financial background from a top accounting firm, senior management experiences at an international level, and a close working knowledge of Champlains finances and many of its operations, Perry said. This coupled with good sense of humor and a belief in Champlains core values bodes well for us as we move the College to the next level.

Facebook51Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by The Evergreen State CollegeRun with a Soldier honors service men and women and was conceived and planned by Olympia native Brian Hoddle.USA Track & Field honors service men and women with the launch of the Run with a Soldier program, Nov. 8-9, during Veterans Day weekend.Run with a Soldier is a first-of-its-kind USATF initiative, motivating runners across America to connect in person and on social media with men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Avid runners are encouraged to identify soldiers in their communities and run alongside the service men and women in local races.Competitors and spectators can share their experiences on social media by utilizing the hashtag #RunWithASoldier. Images tagged with the special event hashtag will also appear in a Run with a Soldier photo gallery on USATF.org.“USA Track & Field is proud to support Run with a Soldier,” said CEO Max Siegel. “This program provides an opportunity for all Americans, including USATF and the U.S. running community, to honor the brave men and women who risk their lives for our country. We can all be a part of a national demonstration of support, using our sport as a platform.”Run with a Soldier is a product of Athens 2004 U.S. Paralympic Team head coach Bryan Hoddle’s vision to help rehabilitate wounded warriors as a volunteer at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and with the Lakeshore Foundation. His mission is to help recuperate soldiers who have sustained injuries in battle.“My inspiration for the Run with a Soldier program really kicked in after returning from the Captain Kyle Comfort Memorial Foundation 5 km last Veteran’s Day weekend in Anniston, Ala.”Hoddle, a USATF certified Level 1 and level 2 instructor, has helped three Paralympians to world records and was recently honored by the state of Washington’s House of Representatives for working with disabled soldiers and athletes with disabilities.“I knew USATF was exactly where I should start with this program because our sport changes people,” said a passionate Hoddle. “Running is healthy for both the body and mind. I realized that we could make Veterans Day so much more impactful by joining forces with the sports governing body to hopefully start a national running tradition.”
